A celebration of our Madness!
"There can be no genius without some touch of madness" -Aristotle
Sharon has returned from her trip with her usual zest for work...now that the refridgerators are all reorganized, we can get down to the tasks at hand. We are stll wrapped up in the cookie craze, which seems to be hitting it's stride, just in time for Party Catering to be added to the mix! I'm o board for the most part but there are a few important things to tend to first. Here's what's on my agenda for the next 3 days...Today, Friday, will be spent in the kitchen replenishing cookies, finishing cheesecakes for the Homestead Restaurant, cooking chickens for the potluck backstage at tonight's performance of the Nutcracker(set up is at 4:30)...then racing back to the bakery to set-up snacks and get ready for our first friday opening of Barbara Wyatt's paintings. The show is called 'Looking Out' and is a colorful delightful collection of smaller canvases...very giftable! The opening runs from 5-7 pm. After that I'm back at the auditorium to help with makeup and costume changes and to clean up the potluck table. Saturday is the final show. The bakery is feeding the performers this day with creamy Tomato Basil Soup and Rockfish Curry Chowder and Pizza! After cleanup backstage it's off to the cast party for ribs and a big ole CAKE! Whew!
Sunday officially begins PARTY CATER 2007...! I'll be in the kitchen with Kate, Ben and Morgan, wrapping borekas and rolling gorganzola grapes. Luckily, it's just one party (for one of our favorite customers)...next weekend is shaping up to be a wild one...
